5.0 out of 5 stars Victorian Style Boys-Own Adventure, 2 May 2012
The thrilling combination of supernatural big game hunter, boys owns adventure stories and witty Victorian literary jokes make this manual both a fun and clever read. A sturdy hardback with gold embossed cover, it's small enough to pop into your rucksack when off adventuring and big enough to really appreciate the spotters guide illustrations and "photographs" of assorted strange and supernatural creatures.

Written through the eyes of Jack Union, Queen Victoria's Monster Hunter, as a collection of short stories and naturalists jottings, the reader is sucked into a surprising world of sinister forces beyond our control, brutal fights to the death and lucky escapes that had me sitting on the edge of my chair, and then wincing in sympathy. Each Monster gets its own chapter, with tips on how to hunt it, equipment needed and habitat as well as the story anecdote during which the beasty meets it's demise (or not...)despite being a staunch vegetarian of long standing, I couldn't help but cheer!

I also really enjoyed spotting all the cameo characters, some just mentioned in a throw away comment, and these included all sorts from classic Victorian literature, pulp adventure fiction and everyday life, though it is also perfectly possible to read the stories for the action alone, these add a depth and interest for those well versed in Victorian Classics. See how many you can spot!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bridal Basic, 22 Mar. 2009
Good clear instructions but rather dull designs, If I'm going to spend ages making a tiara I want it to have Wow factor! If you're a new crafter this book will give you the basics but for the more creative bead and wire worker it's not that great.

5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous, 3 Jan. 2009
Amazing and beautiful bling. The instructions are very clear, and although the end pieces are stunningly complex they were not so hard to create as a first glance might suggest.

however, finding some of the unusual and essential beads used in the UK (vintage rivolis and size 15 czech charlottes) was impossible so be prepared to shop on line across the world for supplies...
